Jacob Primer Leese letter, 1843 June 19, introducing L.W. Hastings. Translated by Violet G. Homen

Personal papers and official records relating primarily to the Mexican period in California History. The first section (v. 1-14) consists of official papers, including letters and documents addressed to Vallejo and drafts or copies of his letters to other individuals. There is also much personal and business correspondence. The second section (v. 15-27) is composed almost entirely of military papers. Most of these pertain to the Presidio of San Francisco, but some relate to companies stationed at Monterey, Santa Barbara, and San Diego. The third group (v. 28-36) is a heterogenous collection, seemingly made up of portions of the family archives of a number of Vallejo's relatives and friends, such as his brother-in-law, John Bautista Rogers Cooper; Cooper's half-brother Thomas Oliver Larkin; and others. Subjects include: government and politics, military history, missions, economic history, immigration and colonization, and social history

Published finding aid: A guide to the Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo documents para la historia de California, 1780-1875 / by Doris Marion Wright (University of California Press, 1953)

Vallejo gave the papers to Hubert Howe Bancroft in the 1870s, after Bancroft's employees had begun copying and indexing the materials for use in a published history of California. Vallejo had retained the official Mexican documents after the U.S. conquest of California
